This is a story that is not getting any legs beyond discussions at the CWG blog, and is one probably hard to believe for some who only see generalized media reports and don’t realize that “parts of the region” can extend for over 100 miles from the District.
Anyway, the “snow drought” continues at National Airport, which is Washington, D.C.’s official reporting station. According to CWG, 1.9 inches fell there from yesterday and last night’s snow.
The last significant snow, at least by this measurement, was January 26, 2011. This is the longest such drought on record.
To be fair, residents of Northern Virginia and even the District have seen more than two inches. And there is the on going controversy about the National reporting site.
Still, this is remarkable in some ways.
CWG posted these totals, the previous 17 snow events.
